Venue Hire Dublin: Your Guide to Choosing The Right Venue in Dublin

When planning an event, particularly events that are to be held over several days, the venue is of primary importance. Dublin has a wide range of venues, from hotels to stately homes; and event organiser must decide on the best venue for their needs. Here at The Wiley Fox, we’ve done the hard work for you by uncovering several tips that can help you locate the best venue hire Dublin has to offer. So read on and let us know how we can further help you.

When choosing a venue hire in Dublin, the first thing to consider is what type of event it’s for. To help with this, think about the following:

Number of guests

Is the event open to the public or limited to a certain number of guests? The number of guests will determine the type of venue needed. If they are many, it means that there is a high demand for the event, so it would be better to hire a place which is more of an attraction (for example, hiring the Mansion House, which is the official residence of Dublin’s Lord Mayor, is a great idea when you are expecting more than 150 guests)

The Nature of your Event

This is an important factor to consider when choosing a venue for an event. It means knowing the type of occasion. For example, if it’s a corporate conference you will be looking for a venue with certain specifications, whereas if it’s a gathering to celebrate an anniversary you will be looking for a different type of venue.

Whether you’re looking for a venue in the centre of the city or just a place to celebrate the occasion, The Wiley Fox offers a great venue to celebrate those intimate milestones.

The Theme and Type of Event

This is also a very important criterion when choosing a venue for an event. When looking for a venue for your next event you may want to find a venue hire that is not just unique but also matches the theme of your event. The Wiley Fox is your best choice as a venue in hosting private parties to company celebrations.

Here are some of the events that we cater to:

Wedding venues

We want you to be at your best on your big wedding day. Whether it’s an intimate celebration with close family and friends or an all-out party wedding celebration with a larger crowd that requires the necessary facilities and equipment, you can rest on the fact that The Wiley Fox has you covered.

The timing of the event

It is also important to consider if your event is during the day, or will run until the wee hours of the evening. For example, when you are organising a corporate conference over several days, it would be best to hire a hotel in the Dublin city centre, because they usually have function rooms that can be used for conferences. These rooms are usually equipped with the latest technology, like wireless internet access and presentation equipment so your guests won’t miss a thing. Wiley’s offers you all of this plus we give utmost importance in making your stay absolutely enjoyable!

The budget available for the event

Cost should be the thing you consider first and foremost when picking a venue. This seems obvious. But, oftentimes, event planners waste significant time and effort on about what they would do with an event at a venue they can’t afford when they should be thinking about and working with, what they can afford.

When picking a venue, it is important to consider how much you want to spend and what type of experience you want your guests to have. We must be mindful to work within the prescribed budget. If it’s a big event, the venue should be well equipped; for small events, it would be sufficient to book a room in a hotel or restaurant. Also, it’s important to check the availability of the venue for your event date and time and to make sure it provides the services you require. Taking all of these details into account, research your venue options, try and discover similarly sized and priced venues and go from there.

The Wiley Fox offers budget-friendly packages depending on your venue needs. Be sure to get in touch with our staff and we will be glad to work within your budget and to discuss with you your options.
